Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer
Marcus has over 35 years experience with Farm Credit, beginning his career on St. Patrick's Day 1980, in his native state of Georgia. After working with two different associations in Georgia Marcus moved to Florida to begin a 21 year hitch with Farm Credit of Central Florida. His Farm Credit journey then took him to the great state of Texas with Farm Credit Bank of Texas, serving as relationship manager and then advancing to Vice President/Unit Manager of the Association Direct Lending Unit. After becoming an "empty nester", Marcus took advantage of the opportunity to return to Florida in April 2013 to assume his current position with Farm Credit of Florida and be closer to family.
When time allows, Marcus and his wife enjoy supporting the local nursery operators and enhancing their home landscape. They also enjoy moonlighting as "Foodies" finding new places to eat where the chefs use locally grown products. They enjoy spending time with their children and "Puppy Son", Raider, and are currently teaching their grandsons the joy of rooting for the "Red Clay Hounds" of the University of Georgia on Saturday afternoons in the Fall.
